I will be chaparoning a friends kids on a month long cultural immersion trip in Costa Rica this summer. We are looking for a place to rent for a month, July or August. It has to be suitable for 5-7 people. Simple yet spacious enough. We hope to befriend a community and make some long term aquaintences. Language and community service will be our focus.

There was an add in the Tico Times a couple a weeks ago for a position in Santa Ana in Costa Rica.....I was in Guatemala for a couple of months but I am now back at home and would like to know if this position is still available, or if there is another opportunity. I live in Santa Ana myself.
Thank you,

Best regards.
